I was looking at different price computing scales for my restaurant because we had decided to start selling bulk items to the public. I was going to just estimate on most of it, but a friend told me that could lead to a lot of trouble that I did not need to have. He explained that by getting a scale that weighs the product and also computes the price would take all of the guesswork out of it, and the people who buy the bulk items cannot say they were cheated. I didn’t think that my customers would do that to me, but I figured that he had a valid point.
I was not sure how much a scale would cost, so I wanted to make sure that it was within my means to do this first. I was surprised at the quantity of different scales available, and I knew that I was going to end up going this route. I found a company that sells quality products and has a very good reputation, and their prices are also really nice. The nice thing about the scale that I ended up getting from them is that I saved nearly 35 percent on the cost of it.
I ended up getting a scale that has the capability of weighing up to 20 pounds. It runs just on six batteries, and it reads in the measurements that I need. I sell in both pounds and ounces as far as weights go, and this scale is able to price both of them. It also can price for kilograms and grams, but I don’t use those too often. It is extremely light, it is easy to use, and all of my workers were able to learn how to use it within minutes. Small things really do save a lot of hassle in the long run!
